Reconciliation: A Journey builds on and updates Michael Gordon's award-winning series of Age articles, capturing the emotion of the Sydney Olympics and the mass walks for reconciliation, highlighting the struggle at local levels to regain control, and identifying those approaches that will lead to true and lasting reconciliation between black and white Australia. Michael Gordon's personal account of a watershed year in Australia's slow journey toward reconciliation was described by judges in the 2000 United Nations Association of Australia Media Peace Awards as "the closest thing to a masterpiece". They added that Gordon, without underestimating the scale of the problems or the challenges ahead, "carried a message of optimism, hope and achievement".
